NEW CANAAN, CT – Sorelle Gallery Fine Art is excited to announce it’s next exhibition of 2018 with ‘DAWN TO DUSK: New Works by John C. Traynor & Ned Martin’, accompanied by Against The Grain’s designer vignette, ‘LIVING AGAINST THE GRAIN’.
Sip wine, mingle and indulge in delicious hor’doeuvres provided by Gates Restaurant during the Opening Reception of ‘DAWK TO DUSK’ at Sorelle Gallery on Thursday, Sept. 20th from 5 - 8PM. Beginning at 6:15pm, internationally collected artists John C. Traynor and Ned Martin will give talks revealing their process and masterful techniques. Exhibit on display through October 20th.
Establishing atmosphere and mood through composition, pigment, and painterly texture is essential to John C. Traynor's process. Constant travel and painting on location is a prime source of inspiration for his landscapes referencing 19th century Dutch Masters. His art studies include Paier College of Art; the Art Students League of New York, as a merit scholar, with Frank Mason; and instruction under Mason and Carroll N. Jones Jr. in Vermont. He later received sculpture instruction from Brother Jerome Cox in Florence, Italy.
Like Traynor, Ned Martin shapes his artistic vision painting on location on the River Seine in Paris and breathtaking vineyards in Italy. After studying Fine Arts at Towson State University in Maryland, Martin continued his formal art training at the Schuler School of Fine Arts. Embracing his training and meticulous process, Martin continues to grind his own paints in Brooklyn, NYC where the hectic energy informs his fractal-like grid techniques. His subjects of nature and community derive from his childhood memories of rural Pennsylvania, while commenting on the interconnectedness of our global society.
